—Maya Angelou (b. 1928)
“The Humanity of men and women is inversely proportional to their Numbers. A Crowd is no more human than an Avalanche or a Whirlwind. A rabble of men and women stands lower in the scale of moral and intellectual being than a herd of Swine or of Jackals.”
—Aldous Huxley (18941963)
“I own I never really warmed
To the reformer or reformed.

Not halfway down the scale of grace.”
